Each year we celebrate National Nursing Students' Week in recognition of all the amazing nursing students who are passionate about providing excellent nursing care and contributing to the future of our health system as the RNs, LPNs, RPNs, and NPs of tomorrow.
Nursing students represent our future – your interest in joining our profession and your hard work and commitment to your studies are foundational to your career and to the nursing care that British Columbians will receive in the years to come. Thank you for all that you do and know that NNPBC will be there for you every step of the way.
Happy Nursing Students' Week!
Celebrate the Future in Deference to the Past
To fully celebrate the future of nursing, it is imperative that we also recognize and reflect upon the full history of our profession. That is why the Canadian Nursing Students' Association (CNSA) has created the theme: Reigniting the Lamp: Shining Light on the Untold History of Nursing. Through this theme, CNSA is promoting awareness of the many nursing leaders whose stories were overshadowed throughout history. Visit the CNSA website and be sure to check out their social media pages to learn more
